Thoughts on mindfulness in daily life

Something for my dream reader


Dream reader
Reader of dreams?
Someone who’s curious about what being alive means
And asks odd questions
Like my son earlier today
We were talking about time and he said how the present can’t exist because where can you find it? You keep chopping up seconds into smaller and smaller pieces and finally you’re left with something infinitesimally small. I was very impressed – he’s 13. He smiled wrily and said he can’t really talk to any of his friends about this stuff.
So my dream reader is someone who does like to talk about this kind of stuff.
Also someone who is full of wonder and love of life, or who maybe has lost that and is looking for it again. Or who never had it but aches to find it.
Has their bare feet planted on the ground and their head up in the clouds.
Not cynical but can be challenging.

Like Albert Einstein said: “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is.”

  1. I’ll choose “the other is as thought everything is”. Every day is indeed a blessing and a miracle. 🙂
